Does that actually reload them? If so, then it sounds feisable, if
you write a utility (e.g. in perl or something else with a GUI and
shell manipulation capabilities) to switch these directories in and
out. [I'm not sure typing ln -s /dir/ /dir/ repeatedly is better than
moving folders around.] Then again, you'd probably need thumbnails in
addition to directory names for said utility, which would also have
long start up times...
I suppose an optional preloader [like OpenOffice.org] is out of the question?
